As sad as it may sound lol, I have recently bought the sims 3. I was wondering has anyone else bought it? And have you had faults and errors with it? If you're thinking of buying it, I really advise you not to, and this is why... I first bought it Saturday and as I thought it was faulty I took it back, but this certain shop didn't have another copy. So yesterday I went to Game to buy it, but once again, I was having problems installing it on my computer. Therefore I tried to install it on my mums laptop and it worked, however I haven't tried the game out on it. However, both laptop and PC have the same Windows Vista (Service Pack 1) which is the requirements for the game. Some of you may think it's my computer that has the problem. But after all this trouble I decided to do my research and search errors and faults on the internet and I found that practically everyone who owns a copy of the Sims 3 are either having problems installing it, or are having technical faults, errors and crashes whilst playing the game. So the whole game is faulty which is EA Games fault, they've said they tested it and their tech team had no problems, but now it's been released everyone is having problems. So after finding this out, I really don't want the game anyway and I think it's unfair that Game shops and other stores are selling this game with so many problems, but because EA Games haven't made an official statement on the matter, these shops probably don't know about the problems anyway. Game's policy is that they will give a refund if the game is sealed in it's packaging or if it is faulty I can return in 3 months from the date I bought it. However, if I was to return it on the grounds that it's faulty [which technically every single copy is], would I have to exchange for another copy. [As after looking at their policy, it doesn't state this] Or would I be able to return it and have a refund? The thing is it's really frustrating after having paid over £30 for it and I honestly think, they should call back these games. Thanks if you're able to give me some advice on this.
